The three-time Olympic medal-winning gymnasticDanell Leyva, recorded an Instagram video in support of the LGBT community. In it he wears a “Make America Gay Again” shirt and talks about, among other things, the rights of trans people to use the bathroom of their gender identity.
“Recently there has been much said about trans rights and the danger people fear they may pose if they are allowed to use whatever bathroom they wish. These people of course are wrong about any danger, and these attacks remind us that the danger comes from bigotry, not the victims of it.“
He then turned to the mass shooting in Orlando, where 49 people were killed at Pulse.
“The love within the LGBT community is so much stronger than the hatred against it and it is our responsibility as non-LGBT people to emulate this love and create a world where LGBT people don’t need to crate their own safe spaces. That is a promise I’m making.“
